Heating and cooling make up about half of the average American household’s annual utility bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. A thermostat gives you greater control over your heat and helps you save money, conserve energy and increase comfort. We offer a rebate for thermostats that work with your heating type: baseboard and wall heaters, or furnaces and heat pumps.

Both rebates are available whether you install the thermostat yourself or hire a contractor to do the work.
